Teacher Introduction

Meet Ruka

Ruka’s first encounter with yoga was during a kids yoga class at her primary school in Malaysia. However, it was not until 2015 that she attended her very first in-studio class at Hot Yoga Wellness Concord – a place which soon became her “home away from home”. In hopes to share the benefits of yoga, she completed her 250 hour teacher training in 2016 and continues to build upon her foundational training to deepen her knowledge.
With training in Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, she works on offering a safer and welcoming space that fosters self-awareness, self-discovery and self-love. Her teaching style is slow but strong, focusing on the awareness of the mind-body-breath connection. Off the mat, Ruka is a Master of Social Work student who loves her plants and soy lattes!
